Electronic Crime Needs Assessment for State and Local Law Enforcement   [open pdf - 433KB]

From the Background: "On January 10, 1998, the National Cybercrime Training Partnership (NCTP), formerly known as the Infotech Training Working Group, issued a summary report of focus group meetings with 31 chiefs of police held in San Francisco, California, and Charleston, South Carolina. [...] In an effort to broaden the scope of information on electronic crime needs, NIJ [National Institute of Justice] initiated a wider study, designed to augment the NCTP survey while both expanding the number of participants and the topic areas covered. NIJ wanted to hear from a range of law enforcement agencies about their experiences to date with electronic crime incidents and how they are positioned to investigate, handle evidence from, and prosecute this type of crime. [...] This report presents the information about how the study was structured. It also documents what State and local law enforcement officials told the team about their experiences with electronic crime. Finally, the report comments on the implications of the research results and offers suggestions for future endeavors."
